K-State Lands 6 on 2013 AP All-Big 12 Team

Tyler, Tyler, He's Our Man - Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

The AP has announced their 2013 All-Big 12 Teams, and Tyler Lockett leads the way by taking up two spots.

Today the Associated Press unveiled their 2013 All-Big 12 Teams. These aren't the "official" honorees, as the conference polls the coaches for that; this is the media selection. Kansas State had six honorees, three each on the first- and second-teams; honorable mentions weren't included.

First-Team Offense
(bold indicates unanimous selection)
QB Bryce Petty Baylor JR
RB Lache Seastrunk Baylor JR
RB James Sims Kansas SR
WR Antwan Goodley
Baylor JR
WR Tyler Lockett Kansas State JR
TE Jace Amaro Texas Tech JR
OL Cyril Richardson Baylor SR
OL Parker Graham Oklahoma State SR
C Gabe Ikard Oklahoma SR
OL Trey Hopkins Texas SR
OL Le'Raven Clark Texas Tech SO
AP Tyler Lockett Kansas State JR
K Anthony Fera Texas SR
Offensive Player of the Year: Bryce Petty, Baylor

Very little surprising here, but the second team, which will get to in a moment, might cause a blink or two.

Defensive Player of the Year: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas

The big surprise here is that Kirby Van Der Kamp -- the only punter in the nation you're going to find on pretty much every draft board -- did not earn the first-team nod. Ryan Mueller was beaten out for Defensive Player of the Year, but I think we all recognized that would be a close one.

Offensive Newcomer of the Year: Charles Sims, West Virginia

Maybe I'm just still traumatized from the season's opening month. I'm not one to complain about a Wildcat getting honored, but it surprised me to see Lucas get the nod here. I'd also have wanted to see Hubert in here, but given the three receivers honored pushing a second running back out, there's little cause for complaint.

Still no Kirby. Weird. Also weird, Blake Slaughter, who didn't have a bad season but is probably being more rewarded for heart than anything here.

Thoughts? Complaints? Tears? Talk it over.
